In this post I’d like to speak about the advantages silk fabric that is admired not just for its aesthetics and durability, but as well for its health benefits.
Did you know that our daily lives are filled with Silk We drink Silk (soy or almond milk, coconut milk) and apply Silk onto our skin (for instance, I use The Silk Cream by Tatcha-Sephora) Wash the hair and condition it using Silk (the brand name for the the shampoo comes from Kebelo) and then go to Silk for a browser on the web (Amazon Silk for Kindle Fire) and use Silk for audio codecs and formats, draw stunning flowing artwork with Silk (featured on the website of Apple as being one of the top applications)?
Hey, what’s the significance of genuine Silk in this array of goods?
The most interesting aspect is that Silk as natural fabric and fiber is becoming lost in this vast array of new products that have nothing to do with have anything to do with the basic product that was at the start of the line.
What number of silk clothes do you own? Do you have silk bedding? Most of us do not have many items made of 100% pure silk. Silk that is natural is not an affordable fabric. However, the price is completely justifiable in my view.
1. Silk fabric has a remarkably smooth surface and is extremely soft and comfortable to touch. It won’t cause irritation to delicate skin, and you’ll feel as if you’re not wearing anything. It smothers your body with silky softness. When I lie down on a silk bed sheet with a silk pillowcase, I awake feeling as if I was sleeping on the top of a cloud.
When shopping for silk bedding, check out the slipintosoft site.
2. Silk is not contaminated by chemicals and is made up of only natural ingredients. Silk fibers are similar in appearance to hair that humans have. It’s composed of 97 percent protein, 3 percent wax and fat. it contains 18 amino acids that are beneficial to the skin of an individual.
3. Silk is the least allergenic of all the fabrics. It isn’t attracted by dust mites, and is resistant to mold, dust, fungus and other allergens.
4. Silk aids in the reduction of moisture. As a result, this , it helps to rejuvenate the skin. It also helps to prevent to a certain extent the effects of ageing, and eases dry, flaky skin issues by securing moisture and keeping it in your face.
5. Silk is cool and comfortable during the summer and helps preserve your body’s heat even in cold. It is perfectly adapted to your body’s temperature and offers thermal equilibrium.
6. Silk is extremely absorbent and it dries quickly. It can absorb moisture as high as 30 percent of its weight, and is dry to the skin. However silk thread simply grows in size. Furthermore, good air circulation helps in the rapid elimination of excess moisture. Thus, silk fabric absorbs sweat and allows the skin to breathe.
7. Silk bedding keeps hair hydrated and free of knots. with a silk pillowcase hair won’t bunch or knot, but instead glide across rather.
8. Silk fabric is sought-after because of its glistening look and won’t fade in its natural sheen over time.
9. Silk isn’t able to generate static electricity in a hurry, which means it’s not able to stick to your body or iron when you push it.
10. Silk is a strong natural fiber despite its fragile appearance. The strength of silk threads is comparable to that of steel wire with the same diameter. Therefore, the thread is sturdy and lasts for a long time.
11. Silk is a versatile material. It’s ideal for many different purposes such as casual clothes as well as cozy bedding and timeless accessories, to formal wear as well as evening wear as well as rugs, parachutes, and even parachutes. It is well-colored and is well matched along with natural fibres, such as wool, cotton and linen.
12. Silk fiber is elastic in nature and is able to stretch up to 20 percent without breaking.
13. Silk fabrics are generally easy to work with when sewing and also surprisingly easy to take care of (except silk georgette, chiffon, and charmeuse)
When we hear “silk” we often think of soft , luxurious fabric that has beautiful sheen. There are numerous kinds of silk fabrics which are very fine, weightless and heavyweight. They are woven and knitted, shiny and matte, hard and flowing, well-draping transparent and opaque, well-structured and flat, etc.
The method of making silk thread is unique as it is created by unwinding silkworms’ miniature cocoons. The technique used to make the production of silk for many years was only known to China. Despite the fact that today silk fabric is produced from India, Brazil, and other countries, China remains to this today the most prolific production of silk.
Silk fabric is the ideal material for sewing. We can sew almost anything for women’s clothing (blouses skirts, dresses, dresses, jackets, trousers) Men’s clothes (shirts tie, shirts) as well as underwear (corsets briefs, bras, corsets and panties) and accessories ( hair clips and neck scarfs) and sheets, bed linen (pillowcases sheets duvet covers) as well as interior decor (napkins, tablecloths and decorative pillows) and upholstery, etc. Silk clothing is suitable for casual wear, office work and also for formal occasions.
I am a huge fan of natural silk and would love to convince you to fall in love with it as well. It’s such a soft and breathable fabric that it’s been called the “Queen of Textiles” for just a several millennia.
